    As Usual...


    Release notes.

    Introduction
    iOS SDK 7.1 provides support for developing iOS apps, and it includes the complete set of Xcode tools, compilers, and frameworks for creating apps for iOS and OS X. These tools include the Xcode IDE and the Instruments analysis tool, among many others.

    With this software you can develop apps for iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 7. You can also test your apps using the included iOS Simulator, which supports iOS 7. iOS SDK 7.1 requires a Mac computer running OS X v10.8.4 (Mountain Lion) or later.

    This version of iOS is intended for installation only on devices registered with the Apple Developer Program. Attempting to install this version of iOS in an unauthorized manner could put your device in an unusable state.

    For more information and additional support resources, visit http://developer.apple.com/programs/ios/.

    Bug Reporting
    To report any bugs not mentioned in the Notes and Known Issues section, use the Apple Bug Reporter on the Apple Developer website (http://developer.apple.com/bugreporter/). Additionally, you may discuss these issues and iOS SDK 7.1 in the Apple Developer Forums: http://devforums.apple.com. To get more information about iCloud for Developers, go to http://developer.apple.com/icloud.

    Notes and Known Issues
    The following issues relate to using iOS SDK 7.1 beta 5 to develop code.

    Bluetooth
    Known Issue
    32-bit apps running on a 64-bit device cannot attach to BTServer.

    CFNetwork
    Notes
    A compatibility behavior has been added to address an issue where some web servers would send the wrong Content-Length value for “Content-Encoding: gzip” content. Previously, NSURLConnection and NSURLSession would send a “network connection was lost” / NSURLErrorNetworkConnectionLost (-1005) error in this situation.

    The compatibility behavior applies only if the Content-Length value exactly matches the expanded gzip’d content. It won’t apply for “off by 1” or similar miscounting.

    Safari
    Notes
    A property, minimal-ui, has been added for the viewport meta tag key that allows minimizing the top and bottom bars on the iPhone as the page loads. While on a page using minimal-ui, tapping the top bar brings the bars back. Tapping back in the content dismisses them again.

    For example, use <meta name="viewport" content="width=1024, minimal-ui”>.

    Siri
    Notes
    This seed adds new natural-sounding Siri voices for English (Australia), English (United Kingdom), Japanese, and Chinese (Mandarin - China).

    The iOS device initially uses a compact voice for Siri. After you have configured a Wi-Fi network and have the device connected to a power source, iOS will automatically download and install a higher quality version.

    Sync
    Known Issue
    In some situations, the “Connect to iTunes over USB to re-enable Wi-Fi Sync” prompt is not shown after an update as expected. Connecting to iTunes to re-enable Wi-Fi Sync is still required (and still functions as expected), it is just that the UI is not shown.

    After upgrading to beta 5, iTunes Wi-Fi Sync users should connect their devices to their hosts to re-pair to enable wireless syncing.

    UIKit
    Known Issues
    Bar button background images are ignored in apps built and deployed to iOS 7.1 when they are set using UIBarButtonItem setBackgroundImage:forState:style:barMetrics: with UIBarButtonItemStyleBordered as the style argument.
    Workaround: Use UIBarButtonItemStylePlain or UIBarButtonItemStyleAny in this case, or use UIBarButtonItem setBackgroundImage:forState:barMetrics:.

    If a UITextField or a UILabel that is baseline aligned with constraints has attributes that change after the constraints have been added, the layout may be incorrect. The exception to this is -setFont: on UILabel, which should work as expected.
    Workaround: Avoid making changes in UITextField or UILabel after adding baseline-alignment constraints. If you must make changes, you should remove the constraints and then reapply them afterward. Note that this is a performance hit, so don’t do it unless it is necessary.

    The backIndicatorTransitionMaskImage from a storyboard or a xib will not be interpreted correctly at runtime.
    Workaround: Set the backIndicatorTransitionMaskImage in code.

    Is it a race to see who can create these threads first?

    First impression after reading the change log and having a look at the installed beta:
    Nothing changed :)
    Seems that it´s just fixing bugs.

    At least this one started with something (i.e. release notes) already in it.

    Shift key fixed

    Shift key issue is fixed. It is much clearer when shift is on and when caps lock is on.

    Control center doesn't seem to bounce as much.

    Edit: the bounce is affected by the reduce motion option. Not sure if that was in previous versions or not.

    My cap lock key doesn't look like that on either iPhone 5s or iPad Air...it's darker now and you can tell the difference. Weird that it's different then yours.

    Shift and Caps Lock are two different functions.

    Lowercase = grey with white arrow
    Shift = white with black arrow
    Caps Lock = Images I posted

    Ugly 'Slide to unlock' with notifications fixed

    The blurry shadow is still there normally but where it was really ugly was when notifications were showing and it was really prominent but now there is no blurring at all under the 'Slide to Unlock'. Another good change :)

    It looks like this if you tap shift once

    [​IMG]

    It looks like this if you tap shift key twice to invoke cap lock

    The highlight on the toggle in Calendar is way bolder now, and the bug where it would occasionally no be highlighted yet still in effect seems fixed.

    You need to be on beta 4. Otherwise you won't see the beta 5 update. At this point, you'll have to get it from the developer's portal.
